, prepare, prepare, prepare. there are similar concerns in new jersey as well. chris christie also held a press conference earlier today. but even before that press conference, he stepped out on his twitter to get the word out to that unconventional avenue. he tweeted that new jersey transit will become a gradual systemwide shut down of bus, rail and subway service at 2:00 p.m. >> the mayor corey booker had a different message to convey, didn't he? >> yeah, he was very blunt addressing what his personal concern was, and i believe it's first responders, getting them in a more dangerous position than they have to be. he addressed residents direct until his press conference. take a listen to this. >> the biggest concern we have right now is individuals not taking this storm seriously enough. the human error that often comes from a lack of preparation or a lack of sobered understanding of what is going to happen to the state of new jersey. and many of the crises we've had to respond to in the past, most mark people not adequately preparing for the crisis. >> back to new york, fred, they're
recommended for residents in flood-prone areas. chris christie said don't try to be a hero tomorrow. if you haven't gotten out, you need to get out within the next five to six hours. they're not messing around. >> exactly. a lot of people are heeding the warnings we've talked to today. they are getting out of these mandatory evacuated areas. you know what? they believe this could be the real deal, an appetizer, a taste of it today at least in the seabright area, a little north of where we are today, it was high tide earlier this morning and they saw one of their rivers come up over its banks and they saw the flooding potential that could happen there, and that's before the main course happens tomorrow when hurricane sandy is expected to come ashore when there's expected to be that storm surge of 4 to 8 feet of a flood coming over right around where we're standing, below where we're standing. we are seeing a lot of people heed the warnings. we also saw a lot of people boarding up their businesses, especially in seabright, putting up sandbags. i spoke with one store owner who has only been in
jersey governor chris christie. he's not messing around with his message. his state is right in the path of this storm. newark's liberty airport is basically shut down. hundreds of flights have been canceled because of this storm. our rob marciano is keeping an eye on things in asbury park, new jersey. rob, last year just before hurricane irene, chris christie told people in no uncertain terms and i will quote him here, get the hell outfit beach. my question to you, are people heeding his message to get out and get to safer ground? >> reporter: you know, they are. and you may remember, he caught some criticism for using those strong words last year after what people along the immediate jersey shore felt was an overreaction. certainly after irene's disaster, turned out to be a wise choice, especially for those living along the immediately shoreline. here in asbury park and up and down the northern coastline of new jersey, they have certainly heeded his warning. here's a look at the surf that continues to pour in. the tide is actually receding now. but i've only seen it go down maybe five,
chris christie. it might fprovide a little relif at pump. certainly the most relief would come if the power was turned back on. >> all right, mary. thank you so much. are we destined to sit in these long lines for the next two weeks? what's your expectation? how long does this last? >> i think maybe another week. we have to get the power restored to some of these facilities. in addition to the discreet things like gas stations lacking the power, we've got one of the refineries in the region in new jersey that's out, that they hope to start up later this week. the colonial pipeline which brings refined petroleum products from the gulf coast up to the northeast and new york, that's going to reopen tomorrow. a number of the harbor ports where gasoline and oil imports are coming in from europe and elsewhere, those have been closed and flooded because of flooding and power losses. but on the whole, because the airports have been closed and because a lot of other people weren't driving, not just in new york and new jersey, but in the region, gasoline and other oil product demand is
that new jersey governor chris christie has signed an executive order implementing odd/even rationing for gas purchases in 12 new jersey counties. odd numbered and even numbered license plates on alternating days. the human toll, meantime, it is growing. at least 22 people have now lost their lives here. the least populated of new york's five boroughs and the highest death toll. for staten islanders, especially, the idea of a global sports and media spectacle being held on their shattered doorstep, it was infuriating and understandably so. today, new york mayor michael bloomberg who had been pushing for the race backed down, saying the marathon had become a course of controversy and division. the thousands of runners from around the world are already here. minutes after the decision we sent our producers to central park to get reactions from runners. some were surprised to get the news. >> you are sure? >> reporter: i'm sure. >> oh, my god. >> we are from germany. we prepared for over a year for this run. that is bad, totally bad. >> what can we do? keep on running. >> we will come ba
chris christie ordering rationing for odd and even license plates starting on saturday. no word yet whether new york's governor will follow suit on that. there are gas lines here, obviously, on staten island. gas lines, in fact, across the area. take a look. this was the scene in edison, new jersey, about 15 miles west of here. the irony, northern new jersey full of refineries and tank farms. without power, though, they can't pump fuel into tanker trucks or resupply stations. for every station that is pumping gas, another one can't because their power is out, too. new york's harbor back open to shipping which may help. the "new york daily news" reporting a tanker today unloaded 200 million gallons of gas. again, along with the rationing in new jersey, federal authorities have asked the pentagon to start trucking in fuel. 24 million gallons into the region. there have been some setbacks as well, though. about 300,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled at a facility along the waterway separating this island from new jersey. it happened during the storm. a tank ruptured, apparently. contai
